With Smack A Candidate, users could virtually punch the nominee they don't like. Each tweet using either #SmackRomney or #SmackObama landed a punch upside the opposing candidate's head. And after each bout, the tweets were counted and a winner was declared. In all, we accumulated over 180K tweets, 200K hits and loads of accolades and press.
